2020: The Year of Indian High Courts

Eminent lawyer Prashant Bhushan posted two tweets criticising the Supreme Court for which he was held guilty of contempt of court. One said that the court had failed to ensure access to justice during the time of the pandemic, the other said that the court had played a role in the destruction of democracy.

Tune in to The Big Story where we bring you a legal roundup of 2020 and what essentially defined the judiciary this year.
